RenderKitFactory is a factory object that registers and returns RenderKit instances. Implementations of JavaServer Faces must provide at least a default implementation of RenderKit. Advanced implementations (or external third party libraries) may provide additional RenderKit implementations (keyed by render kit identifiers) for performing different types of rendering for the same components.

There must be one RenderKitFactory instance per web application that is utilizing JavaServer Faces. This instance can be acquired, in a portable manner, by calling:

   RenderKitFactory factory = (RenderKitFactory)
 public abstract class RenderKitFactory {


The render kit identifier of the default RenderKit instance for this JavaServer Faces implementation.

     public static final String HTML_BASIC_RENDER_KIT = "HTML_BASIC";


Register the specified RenderKit instance, associated with the specified renderKitId, to be supported by this RenderKitFactory, replacing any previously registered RenderKit for this identifier.

renderKitId Identifier of the RenderKit to register
renderKit RenderKit instance that we are registering
java.lang.NullPointerException if renderKitId or renderKit is null
     public abstract void addRenderKit(String renderKitId,
                                       RenderKit renderKit);


Return a RenderKit instance for the specified render kit identifier, possibly customized based on dynamic characteristics of the specified javax.faces.context.FacesContext, if non-null. If there is no registered RenderKit for the specified identifier, return null. The set of available render kit identifiers is available via the getRenderKitIds() method.

context FacesContext for the request currently being processed, or null if none is available.
renderKitId Render kit identifier of the requested RenderKit instance
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException if no RenderKit instance can be returned for the specified identifier
java.lang.NullPointerException if renderKitId is null
    public abstract RenderKit getRenderKit(FacesContext context
					   String renderKitId);


Return an Iterator over the set of render kit identifiers registered with this factory. This set must include the value specified by RenderKitFactory.HTML_BASIC_RENDER_KIT.

    public abstract Iterator<StringgetRenderKitIds();
